Other, yarn

My Washington County Fiber Touring!

I went for an interesting trip yesterday and I would like to share some thoughts and photos from the event. Washington County in Upstate New York has its own annual fiber tour! That means a lot of yarn, all kinds of animals, friendly people and beautiful things to buy.

Visit their page for more information: http://www.washingtoncountyfibertour.org/

This year marks the tour‘s 25th edition. That’s a pretty long tradition, in my opinion! Unfortunately, I only had time to visit two places – the Battenkill Fibers Carding and Spinning Mill and St. Mary’s on-the-Hill. There was an interesting contrast between the mill and the monastery – one is a child of the industrial revolution, the other is a place of old traditions. Even the settings are very different. You can find the mill on a busy street in the town of Greenwich, while the monastery sits on a hill with beautiful calm surroundings.

See for yourself:
